Transport and access

Wembley is situated just outside of Central London, so getting there isn't as complicated as it could be. Because London is seen by many to be the most important city in the country, it is possible to find available options for getting to the ground to be numerous and easy to use.


Wembley is just nine minutes from Marylebone via Chiltern Railways, and two stops from Baker Street. The closest tube stops are Wembley Park Station, which can be found on the Jubilee and Metropolitan Underground lines, Wembley Stadium Station, which is serviced by the already mentioned Chiltern Railways, and Wembley Central Station, which is located on the Bakerloo Line, the London Overground and both London Midland and Southern lines.


Bus numbers 18, 83, 92, and 224 all are serving Wembley. If someone wants to know where they can catch them from, then the Transport for London app and website are ideal resources. It's also worth bearing in mind that National Express is the Official Coach Supplier for Wembley, with the company running services from more than 55 locations around the country.


Because public transport options are so good at Wembley, it is recommended that visitors avoid driving if possible. If still determined to drive, though, then it is possible to find more specific directions by using the postcode HA9 0WS.

By Air

London has more airports serving it than any other city in England. Visitors can fly into Heathrow, Gatwick, London City, Luton, or Stansted airports and make their way to Wembley from there. They all have excellent connections to the center of London itself.


Much like driving a private car, it's recommended to take public transport rather than get a cab if trying to travel through Central London. However, if visitors are determined to get one, though, they should be aware that prices will vary considerably depending on how far away they are traveling from and how heavy the traffic is they will be making their way through. As an example, a taxi from Euston to Wembley will take about 45 minutes and cost around the same amount.



Fans of lower league teams get to head to Wembley from time to time, too. The Wembley stadium hosts the Football League Trophy final and the Football League play-offs. It has also been the ground for the final of the UEFA Champions League in both 2011 and 2013. During the 2012 Olympics, Wembley was used to host the Gold medal matches for the football tournament. Even if someone is not a football fan, then they probably shouldn't rule out the possibility of a trip to Wembley; it has been known to host the rugby league Challenge Cup final and the NFL International series and numerous music concerts. Even though not officially opened by King George V until April 23, 1924, the facility hosted its first FA Cup final the previous year, when an estimated 200,000 people crammed in to watch Bolton Wanderers FC defeat West Ham United FC 2-0. That match became known as the 'White Horse final,' as a mounted policeman took to the pitch to keep fans at bay. Wembley is also known to host the 1948 Olympic Games and the final of EURO '96 but, from an English perspective, unquestionably its finest hour came on July 30, 1966, when Geoff Hurst scored a hat-trick to inspire England to a 4-2 extra-time win against West Germany in the final of the FIFA World Cup. Besides football, Wembley held many other events, mainly grand concerts but also private events like conferences and weddings.This can be considered an economic necessity gave that the stadium ended up costing the FA much more than was initially projected.
